Ive got a rare blood condition called gauchers disease. It affects your blood,bones, white blood cells red blood cells and platlets and your organs. Im 21years old now but when i was 12 i wasnt eating and all my blood count was low, i was bruising easily and was getin heavy nose bleeds. but i went through a lot of tests and the doctors diagnosed it as gauchers disease. I live in ireland im the only one diagnosed so far with this condition :(

I was just woundering if anybody knew about this or any body suffers from it.
I havent been talking 2 anyone with it before and just needed to ask some questions:) xx
